previously on The grey tail: Taras the cat got attacked by the same dog that hurt Pablita. lots of tears (and money) after, we’re getting through it. thank goodness.

once the first scab on BaBa‘s cheek, the big one, came off (about a week later) I went for a second check-up (together with Pablita, of course) and we agreed on adding a bit of antibiotic paste on the area now exposed. he had a small application of this paste the very first day, but since the scab was covering all the area it was pointless to start greasing his cheek when the paste couldn’t go under the scab anyways. we risked to cause him that discomfort that brings to scratching, trying to clean the paste away, with the additional infections this can lead to.
we gave him a week of strict confinement, when weather seemed to agree on helping us through. storms, heavy rain, cold temperatures reached us at high speed and kept us company for a week or so. a real blessing.
at some point we even got scared, cause we had stored all the heavy blankets and kept on feeling cold at night. mind N-E Italy is supposed to be a happy swamp in this time of year, but we were sleeping with our windows closed shut, blankets, wearing jumpers and tracksuits all day! just like heaven to me!! 🙂
